Pours a clear golden brown from the bottle with big fluffy off-white head that dissipates slowly to leave good lace. Aroma of mild caramel malt and clean lager yeast. Taste follows with a hint of earthy hop in the middle and a sweet finish. Soft carbonation, meh.

On draft at Shakespeare in CoMo. Golden orange with just a little foam. A classic version of an American Oktoberfest and a nice one. Light fruit and spices work well. Enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice goldn copper color. Pretty aggressive pour and not much head. I’ll call it khaki. Pretty nice lacing on the glass.
Aroma, eh? Not really much there. Smelling real hard, I can smell some roasted malts. But that’s really about all. On, I finally caught a whiff of something else. It’s earthy and either grass or pine.
Taste is pretty good. It’s malty, but not overly sweet. Not bitter at all. It’s perhaps a tad sour on the very end. I think they nailed the taste.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied. It is so super smooth. Quite crisp. Again a tax sour right at the end, but clean after that.
Overall, I don’t especially like the whole experience. However, Taste wise this is great. I like this, and would drink it again. True to style, but thinking outside the bottle.

Bottle. Poured a dark copper color with a khaki colored head. Aroma was as expected; caramel, earth, nuts, and toffee. Nice robust flavor; full bodied; earthy and nutty, bittersweet with caramel and toffee notes

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance is murky, muddy brown with large bubble foam cap that dissipated quickly. Aroma is rich caramel and toffee with no noticeable hop character. Taste is a one dimensional deep, rich caramel malt, with enough earthy hop bitterness to balance. Not any bready or toast character foun in other German Oktoberfest versions. Mouthfeel is medium with a low to moderate carbonation. Finishes with very little lingering malt taste. Balanced but missing something.

Nice enough, but nothing special on tap at stroud's. Malty, bready, and slightly sweet...

Pours a golden copper with a small white head with great lacing. Aroma of caramel, toasted malt and light floral hops. Taste is malty and toasty with caramel, some light graininess and a bit of floral hops and bitterness. Medium bodied with medium/high carbonation. Solid and clean oktoberfest beer.
